Marcia Carolyn Kaptur (; born June 17, 1946) is an American politician serving as the U.S. Representative for Ohio's 9th congressional district. She is a member of the Democratic Party. The district stretches from Kaptur's hometown of Toledo to Cleveland. It includes all of Ottawa and Erie counties, and parts of Lucas, Lorain, and Cuyahoga counties. In her 20th term in the House of Representatives, Kaptur is the dean of Ohio's congressional delegation and the longest-serving woman in the House. She is also the longest-serving woman in all of Congress, and the second longest-serving woman of all time, behind Barbara Mikulski of Maryland, who served 40 years in the House and Senate (assuming Kaptur completes her current term and is reelected to another, on the first day of her next term she will take the record). She is fifth in House seniority and serves on the House Appropriations Committee.
